    I've been anti-Republican for a long, long time. Being anti-SSM is just another nail in the coffin for me.

    I still don't think that will be the case. They'll hold their nose, take the plunge, pull the lever, and whimsically reminisce about an age gone by when life was so much simpler...

    Yeah? How'd that work out for Republicans in Ohio this last election?

    The older ones will probably do exactly that. But younger social conservatives will do what the young always do: seek alternatives.

    Yeah? How'd that work out for Republicans in southern Ohio - where they were depending on just that phenomena - this last election?

    Coming or going to or from the U.S.?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Ha! I'm not saying I support them in their delusional fancies, I'm just saying as of right now, there aren't any real viable options for them. You can say Dems but as I alluded, to avoid getting your feet wet you don't dive in head first. As for 3rd parties well, they'll show up to hear what they have to say, they'll wear the buttons, hold the signs, chant the slogans, but at the end of the day, they're gonna stick with the devil they know and love.

    That's the point I'm making, as of right now, there aren't any. Greens and Libertarians aren't going for that mumbo jumbo. Those two being the only two real (if you can even say that with a straight face) alternatives to the Dem/GOP.

    Perhaps we're overdue for another great awakening.
